A Rotarian may become a Benefactor to The Rotary Foundation by making the Permanent Fund a beneficiary in his or her estate plans or by making an outright gift of US$1,000 or more to the Permanent Fund. The procedure is easy: Simply notify the Foundation, in writing, of the bequest. Benefactors will be presented with: a commemorative certificate; an insignia that may be attached to a Rotary or Paul Harris Fellow pin; and a letter of appreciation. Each Benefactor is recognized at the time of his or her first gift. Subsequent gifts receive a letter of appreciation.
